Dick Whittington – Milton Keynes Theatre

Pack up your knapsacks, lace up your boots and join us in Milton Keynes this festive season for another spectacular, traditional family pantomime from First Family Entertainment!

In the tale of Dick Whittington this year, Samantha Womack, Eastenders’ feisty Ronnie Mitchell, will be swarming the streets of London with her rodent friends as the evil Queen Rat, whilst Loose Women panellist, X Factor finalist and winner of ITV’s I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! Stacey Solomon will be picking up her magic wand this Christmas as Fairy Bowbells, whilst back to tickle your funny bones is MK favourite Kev Orkian*.

Dick Whittington and his trusty cat Tommy arrive in London seeking their fortune, but find the streets aren’t really paved with gold. After meeting Alice Fitzwarren, a merchant’s daughter, and taking a job for her father, things are looking up. But the evil Queen Rat has other ideas! Will Dick Whittington find his fortune?

Will good conquer evil or will Queen Rat succeed in stopping the course of true love? Do paws beat claws?
